Hello!
Hopefully I can try to walk you through a process that I would use.  First check to see if the flashdrive is damaged.  Usually the cases don't break, but the USB connector itself takes a lot of hits/damage/wear.  You should be able to see 4 metallic contacts on the USB connector and they should be in good shape.  Blow out any dirt/garbage in the connector as well.
Next is to see when you plug it in if the LED on it lights up at all.  If there is no light whatsoever, it is one of two things, either the flashdrive is totally broken or you have a failled USB port.  Either one is possible.  If possible, take the flashdrive and test it on another system, or at least another USB port.  That will give you some important information.
Assuming that the LED lights, then it is a question of getting Windows to recognize the drive.  If there is nothing important on the drive, fdisk the drive in DOS, then format it, and then Windows should recognize it, allowing it to be used.
If you have no LED lighting on the flashdrive, after testing on another system as well, get another flashdrive (or return this one if under warranty), since there are no real parts to service/fix.
Hope this helps out!
Ken

I have a Zip 250 disk that will not read. When I insert the disk in the external disk drive, it will spin and stop a few times and that's it. When I try to access the disk/drive letter via "My Computer",...


If the disk is unreadable this means that the format or the files extensions on it are not readable in the operation system you use..either are damaged or the disk itself is damaged or it wasn't finalized like it should ...If other disks inserted run ok than the disk it is damaged and it is nothing wrong with the drive itself..When it says to insert a disk this means that it is not seeing the disk at all and it sounds like a drive problem ..but if other disks are ok ..than it is just a damaged disk or in a format unreadable ..beware if it a cd unit ..will not read dvd-es..or if it a dvd kind will not read large dvd-es (dual layer) or blue-ray disks..

Hello,
v\:* {behavior:url(#default#VML);} o\:* {behavior:url(#default#VML);} w\:* {behavior:url(#default#VML);} .shape {behavior:url(#default#VML);} Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} The most common reason for the console not reading discs is a bad drive. The following website sells the drives and does installs:
store.richsparts.com

This drive should fix any reading issues you are having with your games, or issues inserting your games or ejecting them (or lack thereof). This is the entire DVD drive assembly mechanism replacement for your Console including a new laser. If your discs are not ejecting, or you cannot insert a disc -- or you can insert a disc but it will not load, this is what you need to get your Console going again!
Hope this will help...

Hi there:
If you know how to boot the computer into bios look for the boot section and check to see if the cd rom is there if not change the settings to show a cd rom and than save and reboot but i think you may have damaged the cd rom when you forced it open these are pretty delicate devices , force should never be used .

Pendrive write protection removing


Hey, the transcend pen drives usually have a small switch on the side of it, ie to turn the write protect on and off, usually a small lock symbol on it, the problem with unreadable files names etc, could be a corrupt partition, i would suggest formatting the drive as long as you aint got any important information on it,

All the best
